While going through issues of the Press & Dakotan from 75 years ago, my editor came across this ad for “Marihuana — Weed With Roots In Hell!”

If we are to believe the film propaganda, and those are the worst results of marijuana use, it’s no wonder that a solid majority of Americans today believe pot should be legalized. Am I right?
If you think you’ve got what it takes to endure the horrors this film depicts, check out the trailer here:
